A very interesting read. I visited Shakertown at Pleasant Hill, Ky., several years ago and picked up this book. From the back cover: The book's author has been intimately associated w/the Shaker Village restoration efforts from the beginning. He narrates the story of these fascinating people with knowledge, warmth and humor. Few outdoor history museums have been blessed with having a noted historian and write of Dr. Clark's caliber on the scene to recount their history.
